Demerol is a Schedule 2 Narcotic, which is in the same category as codeine, morphine and heroin. It is an extremely dangerous and addictive drug. Demerol, also known as meperidine, is similar to other opiates such as Vicodin, Dilaudid and OxyContin. It is found in pill form or syrup and is only legally available through prescription.
The Process of Demerol Addiction
- Demerol is prescribed by a doctor for legitimate pain
- Pain relief is achieved
- Euphoric effect on brain occurs
- Initial euphoric effect becomes harder to achieve
- More and more Demerol is needed to relieve pain
- A tolerance and Demerol addiction occurs
Effects of Demerol Addiction
Whether it is due to the reduction in pain or an elevation in pleasurable feelings, a person suffering from Demerol addiction begins to take more Demerol than what has been prescribed. This abuse almost always leads to a mental obsession and a craving for more of the drug.
As Demerol use increases, so will the physical symptoms associated with its abuse. These symptoms include, but are not limited to:
- Loss of concentration
- Dry mouth
Demerol addiction is both physical and mental. Because Demerol is physically addictive, it should not be discontinued abruptly. Severe Demerol withdrawal symptoms as well as seizures or convulsions may occur if the use of Demerol is dramatically reduced or eliminated. It is for this reason that Demerol withdrawal should be gradual and performed in one of many residential treatment programs under strict medical supervision.
Demerol withdrawal symptoms include:
- Muscle pain
- Bone pain
In addition to the physical addiction created by Demerol abuse, it is not uncommon for those suffering from Demerol addiction to experience the following:
- Financial difficulties
- Personal relationship issues
- Employment difficulties
- Legal problems
- Adverse psychological effects
